Family Formals & Breaking the Rules

BUSY! I feel like I’ve only been in the office for like an hour everyday and I have a pile of work just growing and growing by the hour! It’s that time of the year. College kids are leaving, school is getting ready to start, doctors appointments have to be made and I’m still shooting weddings every weekend! Whew! So this Wedding Wednesday is going to be short and sweet because I have to shower, do something with this crazy hair and run out of the in less than 30 mins!!! So!
